AJ Styles Reportedly Pitches Big Match, AEW – NXT Update

– F4WOnline.com is reporting that AJ Styles had pitched a match with The OC facing Undisputed Era at Survivor Series. Dave Meltzer noted the following regarding the potential match:

“However, it looks right now that if the match will take place on NXT television down the line, or on television somewhere since they shot the angle for it on NXT.”

As this point, the belief is that Styles (who is the current US Champion) will be in a three-way Champions match at Survivor Series against IC Champion Shinsuke Nakamura and NXT North American Champion Roderick Strong.

– As previously noted, the AEW vs. NXT battle was close with AEW winning with 822,000 viewers to NXT’s 813,000 viewers.

Dave Meltzer noted that Dynamite started off strong but the numbers continued to decline during the two hours despite the show being well-received. The increases for NXT during the evening were not as large as AEW’s declines which would indicate that most AEW viewers weren’t switching to NXT. However, NXT did see a big increase during the overrun this week with an increase of 190,000 viewers to 997,000.
